ULP, baby steps count. Try meditation or some other method of relaxation just to get out of your thought pattern. It sounds impossible when you're there, but it's all a matter of changing perspective. If you can't change things, move to another position. It will look different.

A friend of mine in Sarasota did that, was self employed and did quite okay for himself.


It is seasonal work though. Don't get half as many calls in the winter.


That's when you do storm clean-up. Also, get a good roofing contractor as a contact. If you see roofs that are hosed, you can refer them and you work out a deal for commission on a roof sale.... $750.00 flat finder's fee sound good?

This. There are ways to recharge. Get some sun. Walk in nature, ideally near running water. Do breathing exercises and grounding. Walk in dirt in your bare feet. Find youtube videos on boosting psychic energy. It all works.

from the description of your situation feelings and thoughts i would say that you already developed a clinical depression (icd 10 f32.1 moderate depressive episode to be more exactly).
my advice is: go see a general practitioner and tell him your situation open hearted just like you did here. depending on the us health care system he will send you to a psychiatrist/neurologist which in turn will prescribe you anti depressants - probably (s)sri's. but before he takes this step he's going to do some standard clinical tests (most likely a blood test) to exclude physiological causes like vitamin b12 deficit hypothyroidism etc.
anyway. if it turns out that you really are dealing with a depressive episode you'll have to take those antidepressants. most likely you'll have adverse effects during the first two weeks. one of those effects could be suicidal tendencies so if you feel suicidal talk to your doc immediately.
when the antidepressants finally start to work after a couple of weeks you'll be able to find a solution for your problems.
i doubt that you're not able to get another maybe better paid job.

if you don't take this step and you really suffer from depression your situation is going to get worser and worser until you end up in a severe depressive episode. maybe you'll even develop psychotic symptoms.

I am becoming depressed. The problem that is making all this worse is, I have no other place to go. I am unable to go back to college, I am developing health problems, I am so burnt out and depressed I just really don't care. I need to keep working some to be able to pay a few of the bills because If I don't I will be homeless. So what Is the right answer? I am not able to get another job and I do not even have to energy to try if I did have the chance to get another job.

The stress this is having on me is unreal. Having to fight burn out and the stress of having to pay bills as well I am only 27 and my energy and will is being drained real fast.


You're in the wrong place, the stress is killing you, go somewhere else. I don't mean "another city" I mean "another town" or rural area where you can still make a living. People will say it's money related but it's probably not...the truth is you probably feel suffocated by the place you live (ultimately) which means it's people related; too many people not enough nature or ability to escape for a period of time.

You just need to suck it up, sell enough of your stuff so you can get an apartment somewhere else and travel to that place, and just go there and do your best to get a decent job quickly.

Diet may go a long way to make you feel better as well. Depression and Candida go hand in hand.
Try cutting out Sugar, and all forms of grain from your diet. Take a half teaspoon of baking soda in water twice daily to alkalize your blood.
Avoid coffee and alcohol and take some kind of lacto bacteria supplements to counteract the candida fungus.
If you've been on antibiotics they are the root cause of the imbalance.
You can read more here: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl...ction.aspx
Plenty of info on the internet about this. Most Doctors wont tell you that 90% of the prescriptions they write are to mask it's symptoms.

I were you, I would not follow this advice.
Benzo-zombies galore in the streets, never getting
as much as an inch closer to solving root issues.
Au bloody contraire!

Would sincerely recommend physical exercise and
some good ganja instead.
Grow your own - very terapeutic hobby.

Having a job you hate is a real downer. You hate it when you're at work and when you aren't at work, think about little else except the hours before you have to go back. It controls your mood and your mind. If you could, look around for another job. Apply everywhere even if you aren't successfull, you'll feel better for doing something, anything. And get exercise, fresh air. Set yourself a goal too, lose weight, or learn to play guitar or plant a garden, volunteer your time. Good luck ULP

There are lots of people who feel "burnt out" - that there is no way out of their current situation. Life is a bit of a rat race with work, bills, insurance and such. I'm was really burnt out six months ago. Made some changes and things are better. I'm motivated for what is to come.

The biggest change that I made was in my thinking. Maybe this may sound familiar based upon what you wrote ULP - I stopped dwelling on the past about unrealistic goals that I had set. I focused on nutrition, exercise, and regular sleep to eliminate my fatigue. In general, I try to focus on the moment at hand (a bit like "go with the flow") and relax knowing that there is no hurry to do things. I don't have any expectations anymore. So, when good things happen, it's like Christmas.

Enjoy the journey of life. Stop focusing on a destination. It's constantly changing anyway. Speculation about it is a waste of time.

Peace ULP and hope things get better. I bet they will.

Like Shadow and A.S. also suggested, exercise! Sounds like bullshit, but it's not. I would also not recommend anyone to go on anti-depressants, but there are natural alternatives that are proven efficient against depression such as Saint John's wort. You'll find that in a health food store and doesn't have any adverse effects.

Quote:St John's wort is widely known as an herbal treatment for depression. In some countries, such as Germany, it is commonly prescribed for mild depression, especially in children and adolescents.[6] It is proposed that the mechanism of action of St. John's wort is due to the inhibition of reuptake of certain neurotransmitters.[1]

A report[7] from the Cochrane Review states:

The available evidence suggests that the Hypericum extracts tested in the included trials a) are superior to placebo in patients with major depression; b) are similarly effective as standard antidepressants; and c) have fewer side-effects than standard antidepressants.

Good article cheers.gif and not surprising in the least. So many have come to the realization they are simply debt slaves to the banks; no one want's to contribute in any meaningful way to a collapsing ponzi scheme.
The best thing we can all do is become absolutely worthless to the banks. It's the only way to break the stranglehold.

it has adverse effects but most of them are very mild - as long as you keep the dose low (adverse effects could be headaches gastrointestinal issues or phytophotodermatitis for example). btw if you're a woman you shouldn't take st. john's worth and the anti baby pill.
st. john's worth won't help you if you suffer from moderate or severe depression.
